How many areas so close to central London can offer the opportunity of living in a busy, cosmopolitan town next to a village?
Wimbledon dwellers enjoy the benefits of living close to the business of the city yet can take advantage of the Common, the parks and the slower pace of life. This is what makes Wimbledon such a desirable prospect for potential buyers. And this is what attracts many first-time buyers to choose Wimbledon as the place to begin their journey on the property ladder.
The image most people have of the first-time buyer is usually one of a young couple or a singleton with limited funds looking for a one or two-bedroom property. Although this may be true in many cases, there are some people who, for various reasons, are coming to the property market for the first time with sufficient funds to buy something substantial than a modest-sized apartment. And there are plenty of properties in Wimbledon that will be of interest to both types of first-time buyers.
Wimbledon has a wide range of housing. This includes period and new-build detached mansions, elegant Georgian and Victorian townhouses, flats and modern apartments. However, when it comes to buying property in Wimbledon, it is important that first-time buyers have a firm strategy in place before they begin their search.
Here are some tips first-time buyers should follow to help develop their strategy.
While researching a property, lean on the estate agent and use their expertise. Of course, first-time buyers have the advantage over other buyers because they do not have a property to sell, so are not part of a chain.
